haiku wednesday - the lost week edition

This week's words are cleanse, knead, melt
Wait... where did the past seven days go? BIG apologies to everyone for not getting round to your entries last week. I had meant to, but things got in the way. Kids with track meets, extra meetings at work, blah blah blah. You know all the excuses.

cat's paws knead my back
warm purr, tensions melt away
cleanse me of my day


god's hands knead the Earth
cities melt, crumble to dust
cleanse and start over


cleanse hands; knead warm dough
melt butter; dribble on top
I love your biscuits

"Delightful" is a lovely word, Greyscale Territory! Thanks!

Thanks, Jae! Haiku are indeed small things. :-)
